Birmingham have sealed the signature of exciting young Sheffield United striker Che Adams.
The 20-year-old joins the Blues on a three-year deal, having scored 15 goals in 55 appearances after joining Sheffield United from Ilkeston.
Adams had been at the top of Gary Rowett’s summer wishlist for some time, having had a £1.2million bid turned down for the youngster in August, and scouts from the midlands had been watching him regularly for some time.
Adams said: “I’m excited, I always remember Blues being a big team.”
“I’m happy the deal is over the line, it’s been going on for a couple of weeks now.
“There’s been a bit of frustration because I haven’t been playing as much as I would like.”
Although being able to play either as an attacking midfielder or a striker, Adams sees his future as an out-and-out frontman, ending last season in a partnership alongside Billy Sharp.
Adams explained: “I like to attack and get forward, take players on and score goals. My main aim is to score goals and get this team in the Prem.
“I’ll be annoyed if I don’t hit my target of 15 goals this season.”
Adams won’t be in the Blues’ squad to face Oxford in the EFL Cup this evening, but will be available for Saturday’s game away to Leeds.
